I personally like the underslung cars for stability and longevity. I have seen guys go thru rear clip after clip on the over-slung cars. Not my idea of fun.

Under slung cars are my preference as long as during maximum roll the left rear frame doesn't bang on the rear end.With the lift available on 4 bar cars overslung would prevent this problem and is more easily replaced if bent.

I like the underslung frame also. I think it's stronger and the rearend doesn't fall out when something breaks on suspension.

definately underslung much stronger and also helps contain rearend saving shocks,sliders ,driveshafts when something breaks

The chassis that I am building is a 3 link that is underslung on the left rear, and not on the right!
